Virginia Mill Works Co.- 1/2" x 5" Cheyenne Birch- Prefinished Stained Handscraped Engineered Flooring- 30 Year Warranty

Colonial American homes were built with wooden floors that were sawn using basic hand-held tools. The hand-crafted workmanship that went into those floors can be found in Virginia Mill Works handscraped floors.

Length: 1-4' (400mm-1200mm)

Quick Highlights:
- Superior Strength and Stability
- Handscraped Engineeredl
- Nail, Glue or Float Installation
- Backed with a 30 Year Warranty

About Handscraped Flooring:
Handscraped or distressed hardwood floors have a natural worn appearance. They look like floors from the days when floors were finished by hand.

About Engineered:
Hardwood veneer layers are stacked on one another, with the grain of the adjacent layers oriented perpendicular to each other.
Because wood expands and contracts in the direction of the grain, one layer stabilizes the next, resulting in a product that is less susceptible to the effects of moisture & temperature change.

Did you know?
An estimated 60-70 million Americans are affected by house dust, which can cause itchy eyes, sneezing, rashes, breathing difficulty and sinus trouble because of trapped pollens and molds in carpets, upholstery and curtains.
Not even frequent vacuuming will eliminate those microscopic troublemakers.

  • Q:

    In general, which type of flooring is better with dogs & children? I am currently looking at engineered hardwood vs laminate flooring and I am concerned with the floor being slippery & leading to injuries for both kids & pets. Of course scratches come in to play as well. Which is more durable? So many brands to choose from, which is recommended? Thank you!

      Despite today's advanced technology, water spills, dirt and other abrasive substances can damage a wood floor's finish. Location, traffic patterns, how often the floor is vacuumed and cleaned, children and/or pets are all factors that influence wear and durability.

  • Q:

    I'm looking for a hard engineered flooring that will take the wear of dogs. Someone suggested handcut flooring. Is it all the same hardness Oak maple or others? My daughter has bamboo which is supposed to be hard and it's scratched. Please give me your opinion as to how to have the look of wood but also the durability. I don't think I want laminate. Thanks very much

      I have a Bellawood floor that holds up extremely well to our Hound Mix, Pit-Boxer, and another young mutt and a cat. Not to mention nieces, nephews, and work shoes. Excellent finish. It's not scratch free but no wood floor could be with these dogs. Harder floors like hickory (41% harder than Red Oak) or exotic floors will dent less easily. 3/4" hardwood can also be refinished several times. Light colors will hide potential scratches. Remember nothing is scratch proof but some do better than others.

      Our higher warranty Laminate flooring holds up very well to dog nails and wear but cannot be refinished. Advantage is it's less expensive both for product and labor. Higher Warranty the better.

      Our Schon engineered flooring has 7 coats of Treffert or Klumpp (made in Germany) highly resistant polyurethane finish with aluminum oxide anti-scratch and a 55% gloss. Being a natural material it may dent easier than laminate but it's real wood. Engineered can be refinished carefully once or twice.

      For Bamboo our Morning Star and Bellawood brand has a superior finish and offers the hardest type of bamboo floor produced, "Strand Bamboo". It can be refinished too but only by professionals with bamboo experience as it's a grass product and more difficult than hardwood. Stranded would be my only choice if going with bamboo.

      Resilient Vinyl flooring is a very tough floor and the most resistant against damp areas. 

      Regardless of the floor you choose, keeping nails trimmed is a good idea. Another idea is to cover nails with vinyl claw covers.

      Proper care always helps. For general cleaning a swiffer type system works best. Not one that sprays the floor however. Lightly damp is fine but never soak or flood mop your floor. Have a no shoes policy as much as possible. Use felt pads on all furniture. Sweep often. Urine, when cleaned up quick isn't an issue but if left to dry it can burn finish.

      Bellawood Cleaner works very well, find it here -

  • Q:

    Is Santa Cruz plank a 3mm veneer or 2 mm veneer. When answering a question you stated it was 2 and the specifications say it is 3mm. I would like to know before I make a purchase.

      I apologize for the incorrect information.
      This product has a 2mm veneer wear layer.
      It is being corrected on our product page.

    • Staff Reviewer


      Virginia Mill Works Engineered 1/2" x 5" Santa Cruz Handscraped Engineered technically is 3mm. But it varies though out the board because its a hand scraped product.

  • Q:

    We installed this floor and love the look of the floor, but it squeaks horribly. The squeaking is not coming from the sub flooring. Has anyone else had this problem?
    Asked on 3/29/2013 by Squaked out from Oshkosh Wisconsin

    1 answer

    • Staff Reviewer


      Squeaking is usually caused by movement of the boards (deflection) and rubbing together, if you can stop the movement the squeaking should stop.

  • Q:

    why is the waste so high for this product?
    Asked on 2/18/2013 by Jodie from Bellbrook, Ohio

    1 answer



      After you establish your square footage in the rooms to be installed, add for waste and order that much. Enter in the "Your Square Feet:" box on the product webpage and try to round off to the nearest box.
      Engineered and laminates have less waste 5-8%

  • Q:

    Is this a floor that can be installed up a wall in a bathroom. It would not be exposed directly to water, but would be in a room that obviously gets moisture. Thanks!
    Asked on 8/6/2012 by Janet from Mount Pleasant, SC

    • Staff Reviewer


      I apologies we do not retail flooring that should be applied to walls, while we do have customer's that do that frequently it will void any warranty that comes with the flooring. If you are looking to install wood on your walls in the bathroom (high moisture and humidity) I would take a look at something that has the highest stability rating which is our strand bamboo
